Utah in the news
So much climate news from our state in the last few weeks!
RepublicEn - All eyes on Utah this week
E&E News - House Republicans huddle quietly to plot climate strategy (led by John Curtis)
Ripon Society - "I stand firm on my conservative principles, but I believe in productivity over partisanship."
Blake Moore, asked about climate change - “People want to see a plan. They want to see where the investments need to be made. We, as Republicans, have to change the conversation and highlight what we’ve been doing, what conservatives have been doing on this issue. The media is not going to just automatically do that. This is not an issue that we can shy away from.”
John Curtis - “I regret that Republicans have allowed ourselves to be branded as not caring about this wonderful environment that we have, and that’s one of my projects: getting Republicans better on their feet on this issue and actually do something besides say that we don’t like the current ideas and proposals out there.”
